Full description
Depart Krakow for a poignant day of reflection with a visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps. Journey back in time to the dark days of World War II and take part in a moving history lesson about the Nazi Holocaust.

Funded by the Nazi party in 1940, Auschwitz-Birkenau became both a symbol of human suffering and a witness to physical and emotional exhaustion. As the largest concentration camp operated by the Nazis, it became the final resting place for millions of people, mostly Jews, put to their death in the hideous gas chambers.

Journey to the museum and memorial in the suburbs of Oświęcim, about 60 kilometers west of Krakow. Upon arrival, approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes later, meet a professional guide who will show you around the site and speak of its terrible history.

Visit the first camp at Auschwitz for about 2.5 hours and then get a 10 minute break to gather your thoughts. Then, visit the second camp at Birkenau, where mass killings took place as part of the Nazi's infamous "Final Solution to the Jewish Question." Spend about 1 hour at the Birkenau camp, before meeting your driver for the return journey to Kraków.
